Default Official Bearville Insider Vitamin D Photography Contest! (RESULTS - FINALLY!!!)

I am so very sorry it took me forever to get these results posted . All the pictures were excellent, and it was beary difficult to judge! I also had a number of real-life issues to deal with. I thank LocoBananas and my best friend (who doesn't play Build-a-Bear - he did the final tie-breaking) for helping with the judging.

At long last, the top four prizewinners *drumroll*:

1st place: SavannahSassyFriend1 - Fae the Flamingo drawing the map of BABV in sidewalk chalk
2nd place:ValentinaHug - Ice Cream Bears climbing on circular piece of playground equipment
3rd place: JonathanIceSkate - World Cup Owl
4th place: mickeyquack - "No BABs got wet during this photography session"

Since they were all so excellent, I will add a 1-credit item for each of the two prizes that get roses. I'll let you pick your prizes in order of placement (e.g. SavannahSassyFriend picks whether she wants ear buddies, a jump rope move, or roses and 1 credit, then ValentinaHug picks which of the remaining three prizes she wants, etc.)

Thank you all for entering such wonderful photos and fun captions! It was great to see all your creative entries!

*****

OK, all you vampires who stay inside during the day on the computer, it's time to get outdoors and catch some rays to get some vitamin D in you! So grab your camera, cellphone, DSi, or whatever other electronic device you have that can capture an image outdoors and head outside for some fun in the sun!

(Some of you may remember that poll I posted about cameras, and have wondered why I did... Here's your answer!)

Three winners will be selected, and they will win one of the following things:

1. Ear Buddies,

2. a
Jump Rope Move,
3. or a
Bouquet of Roses in a color of your choice!


Thanks to
fairlyoddmom for providing the Ear Buddies and Jump Rope Move!

This contest will run until August 15th, 2010. Pictures posted after 12 pm, EST on August 15 will not count.

Note: There are two options for subjects to photograph in this contest. If you have a Build-a-Bear animal, do #1. If you do not have a Build-a-Bear animal, do #2.

The rules:

1. If you have a Build-a-Bear animal:


Take a photo of your Build-a-Bear animal outside in the sun (such as next to a plant or something to show that it's not indoors) and give it a caption.

2. If you do not have a Build-a-Bear animal:

Made a drawing outside using sidewalk chalk that relates to Build-a-Bear or Build-a-Bearville, and take a photo of the drawing during the day.

As usual, ABSOLUTELY NO personal info or photos that include people, street addresses, names, etc. which might identify location easily. Breaking this rule would result in automatic deletion and disqualification. Photos and captions must follow all other standard rules of BI.

No photo editing except for cropping and basic color adjustment (like changing brightness/contrast if it's hard to see) - it has to be an actual photo of the animal outside, or of an actual sidewalk chalk drawing that you created yourself.

You may only post ONCE on this thread. Your photo and caption should not be changed or edited after you post them. Please keep post edits to a minimum. Please stop with the "placeholder" posts. They annoy me greatly. Edits made after the cutoff date and time result in disqualification.

Judging criteria:


1. Relevance to the contest - it's actually photographed outdoors, during the day, and includes either a Build-a-Bear animal or a sidewalk chalk drawing of something related to Build-a-Bear or Build-a-Bearville.

2. Clarity of the photo - can we tell what's in it?

3. Caption - how well did you describe the photo, or how amusing/unique was your description?

4. Originality - did you find some unique place to take the photo, or did you include another interesting object in the photo?

Here are some example photos:


This is a good example.

It was taken during the day, obviously outside, and shows no personal info.

I don't know if you ever read the Bearenstein Bears book called The Bike Lesson, but... "This is what you should not do, Little Bear!"

"I can fly! I can fly! Hey, umm, you think you could open that door so I might actually go somewhere?"

It was taken at night, indoors, and you can see buildings. Not good, not good at all!

Now go get those creative juices flowing, shutters snapping, and... well you get the picture!

Credit goes to LocoBananas for help with the rules and judging criteria. Thanks to fairlyoddmom and Wendy for permission to host it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are answers to questions I've been asked:

1. You may have as many furry friends as you like in the picture. You may include any objects you want, as long as they are allowed.

2. Furry friends may be wearing whatever clothing or items you like. You can't really see in the picture, but my dog is wearing a collar and leash, in addition to the pink plush flowers on both ears. Normally, she wears a hoodie instead of the leash, but it was 90 degrees outside that day, so it didn't seem very fitting lol.

3. Yes, you may use mini Build-a-Bear animals.

This is (Ari)Zona, she is named after the orange bluffs of Arizona and also after my dog. Zona is gardening flowers in her magic Buildabear garden. Her flowers never wilt! They stay fresh and smell great! Zona also likes to explore, but during the summer it is also important to take great care of your flowers!
